Technology has shown us days that none of us had thought we’ll ever get to see. The average teenager’s day in 2020 includes getting up at 8, freshening up, and sitting at their table for 6-8 hours straight for classes and study sessions. After a quick break, the teenager will return to their phones for another 4-6 hours. While this is in no way ideal, it’s also the bitter truth. The Covid-19 pandemic has turned teenagers into cheap dopamine-hungry, numb humans.
Thankfully, the pandemic is over now. With or without enthusiasm, teenagers are back to their schools and colleges. However, the worst aspect has still stayed behind: smartphone addiction. If there’s one thing that truly helped in the promotion of online entertainment services like social media and OTT platforms, it’s the pandemic.
Instagram, Twitter, Netflix, Amazon Prime, and dating apps like Tinder and Bumble have seen an all-time high in their user base; users are looking for new ways to detach from reality.
Today’s blog will discuss what “sent from the chat” on Messenger means.
What Does “Sent from the Chat” Mean on Messenger?
Let’s start with your initial question: what does it mean when you see “Sent from the chat” on Facebook Messenger? Well, the answer is as simple as it can be. It means the user is replying to you from the Facebook app’s chat box rather than Messenger. So, they haven’t installed the Messenger app yet or feel more comfortable this way.
So, now you know exactly what “Sent from the chat” on Messenger means. Let us now discuss a few more processes and features on Messenger that are related to this question.
How does the Active Status work on Messenger?
You might know that the Active Status feature on Messenger is highly inconvenient. It lets other users know when you’re online or if you were recently online. Features such as this are available on almost all social media platforms to some extent.
Many users complained that it’s an invasion of privacy, and they won’t be using the platform anymore if it goes on. On the other hand, another group of users claimed it worked great for them because they like knowing when their friends are available. Moreover, who really cares? It’s no reason to be perplexed.
While social media platforms were torn between trying to please one or the other groups, one simple solution fixed it. Users could choose if their active status was displayed to other users.
With time, many other modifications were added to make it more convenient for users with different needs. On WhatsApp, for example, you get to edit read receipts, last, seen, and online status, too! But of course, if you choose to hide one of these from other users, you also won’t be able to see these features on their sides, even if they’ve kept it on. Isn’t that so fair?
